Christmas Trees for re-cycling

People who are sprucing up their homes as the tinsel comes down are being reminded of the advantages of composting their real Christmas trees.

Residents can put their festive conifers out for collection via South Northamptonshire Council's (SNC) green garden waste bin from the week commencing Monday, 8 January 2018.

Collection of Christmas Trees in Brackley will take place week commencing 15th January 2018.

If the trees do not fit into the green bin, they can be left next to it on collection day. The district's Christmas trees will then be taken to a facility in Helmdon, where they will be turned into a nutrient rich compost over a 12-week period. It is then redistributed to local farmers to help improve their crops.

Residents are being asked to cut trees which are six foot high or over in half to make it safe to load them into the council's recycling trucks.

They should ensure that all decorations are removed from the trees before putting them out for collection.
